2 am

older everyday older
stretched and weathered
skin and flesh
bones on the ground
when my ribs were split open
i felt your breath blow in new life
each day stronger and each day longer
until i had strength in my ankles to support my legs
then legs to hips and hips to torso
my head still hanging
not a drop of energy can be wasted
when you pull away i long for you
still i have no breath of my own
you resurrect me
you restrain me
you command me
you contain me
i wait patiently for your embrace
i wait to see your anger cool
my love is a jealous god
quick to anger
yet fast to forgive
not without reason
not without tolerance
my claws retract
i yield to you
never knowing
yet ever trusting
